You, Could You, Please Be Mine?
(This is based
on a humorous children's book, "Green Eggs and
Ham," by Dr. Seuss)
I do not like
green eggs and SPAM,
So when I check e-mail, I am,
All fearful till my inbox shows
That I've got mail! And my heart glows
When I confirm that love of mine
Has sent to me a Valentine!
Would you, could you, please
Oh would you be my Valentine?
Oh would you, could you be a part,
Of all that's joyful in my heart?
For I would love you here or there,
Sue , I would love you anywhere!
Yes, I would love you on the moon,
Or sailing high in a balloon,
Oh, I would love you here or there,
Sue, I would love you anywhere.
So Sue, this Valentine I send,
To you my sweetheart and best friend.
And hope that on this special day
That in my heart I'll hear you say,
That you will love me here or
And you will love me anywhere,
That you would love me in a boat,
Or riding saddled on a goat,
Or in a car or on a plane,
Or soaking wet out in the rain.
And please don't think that I'm
When I insist just once again,
That I will love you here and there,
Sue, I will love you everywhere.
Would you, could you plant a kiss
Upon me Sue, 'cause how I miss
To have you cuddled up to me,
Now you're so far across the sea,
And you might think that I am
But I would love you on a raft,
And if folks said, 'Oh look at him!"
I still would love you, sink or swim,
And if I sank, I'd ride a whale,
Till I was close enough to yell,
That I would love you on the beach
Or anywhere that's within reach
Of one poor guy who all will do
To be again with his love Sue.
So will you, won't you say to
That you forever more will be,
The sunshine of my too brief life,
My best friend, Sue, and my best wife!
Dr. Seuss was one of my favorite
authors, and most famous for his delightfully illustrated children's books
like "Cat in the Hat" and "Green Eggs and Ham." Learn
